Safety ratings flawed in new rego system

The new vehicle licensing system has ben labelled ‘a lemon’ after complaints over the safety classifications of some vehicles, Labour’s ACC spokesperson Sue Moroney said last week.
“Last week 18 different vehicle models had to be reclassified. This week that number has climbed to 24. It took weeks of individual complaints, a Parliamentary Question from me, a complaint from Toyota and now an investigation by Fair Go before the Minister acquiesced on the safety rating of one vehicle –the Toyota Avensis.
“The Right Car link on ACC’s own website showed it was classified as ‘high safety’, yet the registration system rated it one of the most unsafe. The new system is faulty, confusing, badly implemented and fundamentally unfair,” Sue Moroney said.
